Cincinnati & Destination Photographer


It was our last wedding of the season and I can’t imagine a better wedding to end it with than Kelsey & Danny, on New Year’s Eve!  What a celebration to honor their love for each other!!  These two are so full of fun and sunshine! Spend just five minutes with them and you’ll know what I mean. They’re the kind of couple you just love from the moment you meet them – genuine, kind-hearted, full of joy, and appreciative. Watching Kelsey float around on her wedding day as the happiest human ON EARTH filled our hearts!  The Cincinnati Club was the perfect venue for a romantic, candle-lit ceremony on New Year’s Eve.


Kelsey and Danny met in a Monday morning all-staff meeting. They started out as friends, but soon (and without hesitation) Kelsey started promising Danny she’d marry him someday. On hot July day, Kelsey and Danny went on their “first date.” Danny had no idea the “friends” kayaking trip was really a 1:1 adventure down the Little Miami.

Kelsey was celebrating a killer week at work. After being gone a few nights in a row, she wanted to make it up to Danny by scheduling a night out. She chose Boca, a high-end restaurant downtown. Suspicion was at an all-time high because she knew Danny would take advantage of a night like this one to sneak in a proposal. Danny was cool as a cucumber. Through dinner and then drinks at the Blind Lemon, Kelsey started to doubt that tonight was “the” night. She doubted it so much so that before it happened, Kelsey texted her friend Jen and said, “Well, no ring tonight!” Shortly following, Danny pulled down a dead-end street in Mount Adams -a spot they’d visited before. They sat on a park bench overlooking the city and talked about how this night would be impossible to top for years to come. Just then an unexpected visitor joined them, a dog named Coco and her owner. Unbeknownst to Kelsey, Danny was rattled. They returned to their conversation and soon after Danny found himself on one knee. To which Kelsey repeatedly yelled, “Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP!” Completely forgetting to even look at the ring, she immediately said “YES!”

His favorite thing about her? Her energy

Her favorite thing about him? His sense of humor and patience

Kelsey and Danny, thank you for trusting us with these memories and for making our 2020 wedding season end on the perfect note!!   We’re truly grateful!  Enjoy a few of our favorites from this beautiful Cincinnati Club wedding.
